Through 75 games this year, Steph Curry is averaging 25.2 points, 6.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game.
He's shooting just under 47 percent from the field and over 40 percent from deep, and has made 302 3-pointers -- the second most in a single-season in NBA history.
"I think it's comical that people were saying I'm having a down year," Curry told Bleacher Report's Kevin Ding. "To go black and white and say I'm not having as good a season as I was having last year based on just five points a game or shooting percentage or whatnot...
"There are other things that you try to do other than just the eye test to try and help your team win. This year has taught me that, for sure. The accolades and the attention and all that stuff, the hype is cool. But it's really how you feel about your own game."
Last season, Curry averaged 30.1 points and 6.7 assists per game. He shot over 50 percent from the field, over 45 percent from distance and made an NBA-record 402 3-pointers.
In doing so, he became the first unanimous MVP in NBA history.
Curry isn't going to win the MVP for a third straight year, and he's OK with that.
"I can wake up every day and be like, 'I know what I'm trying to accomplish; I know I'm going to get better.' I know when I don't play well and how mad I get at myself," he explained. "I know when I do play well and how I want to keep that going. Same approach as I had last year.
"Just five fewer points a game. Who cares?"
Since Kevin Durant got injured, Curry is averaging 26.4 points and 7.3 assists per contest.
On Sunday night, he racked up 42 points and eight assists.
The two-time MVP wants the 2014 back on the floor with him.
"With the roster that we have and adding a guy like KD, there's obviously going to be more of a balanced attack," Curry said. "It's pretty clear how that's kind of evolved over the course of the season. My job as the point guard of this team is to balance all the talent that we have, plus at the same time staying aggressive with my own game.
"What we've been able to do the last two, three weeks has been a good reminder of exactly what we're all capable of, and it's no slight to (Durant). When he's back, we're a much better team. We want him back as soon as possible.
"But what we've done in his absence, and how I've tried to help contribute at a high level, speaks for itself, really."
